On the west side of Sicily close to Marsala,
Cantine Rallo has its vineyards and winery.
Working organically the Vesco family focus on creating fragrant
crisp Catarratto and perfumed fresh Nero d'Avola from their
hillside vineyards. These vineyards are certified organic and are
nestled high up in the hills south of Alcamo to take advantage of
the slightly cooler temperatures and greater diurnal differences.
The vines look down on the town of Marsala where, when the grapes
have been harvested, they are taken to the seaside winery. Here
Andrea Vesco treates them with respect, utilising modern technology
to ensure the freshness is retained for the final wines and
creating elegant examples of the varieties that are anything but
what you would expect from such a hot land.
